Wildlife and Aquatic Animal Medicine (WAAM) Club


The Wildlife and Aquatic Animal Medicine (WAAM) Club promotes interest and learning opportunities for veterinary students in the fields of wildlife, zoological, and aquatic animal medicine by interacting with faculty and professionals and by exposing students to the different aspects of these diverse fields through hands on learning events, internships, and field trips. 

Please check out our events, including our annual Wildlife and Exotic Animal Symposium February 24 and 25, 2018!  Please check back for details regarding symposium speakers, schedule of events, and registration closer to April or join our listserv to receive regular updates.

Are you a non-veterinary UC Davis student interested in attending some of the presentations hosted by WAAM?  We now have a listserv for notifying others of these events as well.  

If you are a veterinary student who is interested in joining WAAM, or another student who would like to be on the list, please email our club secretary, Derek Blahut.
